Making Room For Jesus
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
We all have heard the Christmas story of how Jesus was born in a stable because there were no more rooms available at the inns. Of all the places that Jesus could have been born in, the King of kings, the Creator of the universe, and the Great I Am was born in a stinky, dirty stable and was laid in a manger. However, instead of focusing on Jesus' birth, think about how there was no room for Jesus and how that can correlate to us. Do we make room for Jesus in our life? We may be saved and on our way to Heaven, but do we take time each day for Jesus? So many times, we get wrapped up with the busyness of life that we forget to spend time in the Bible, prayer, meditating on His Word, and sharing the Gospel with those around us. We may not verbally denounce Christ, but sometimes our actions prove what takes more precedence in our life. Remember each day to make room for Jesus and share Him with those around you.
